The concept of instream flow criteria was first defined in the 's, and has since developed into a major component of water resources management (Doerksen, . This paper summarizes results of a survey conducted in of 57 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service field offices. The purpose was to document opinions of biologists experienced in applying the Instream Flow Incremental Methodology (IFIM). Responses were received from 35 offices where IFIM applications were reported. The existence of six monitoring studies designed .   The most classical of these is the instream flow incremental methodology (IFIM) developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in , which includes the suitability of target species to a series of factors such as flow velocity, water depth, substrate and etc. to build a habitat suitability index model (HSI).Cited by:   Bovee, K.

A method widely used to evaluate the habitat suitability of fish is stream habitat analysis (Moir et al. ).The stream habitat analysis calculates the flow rate considering each factor of the ecological environment, and combines results from the physical habitat suitability index and hydraulic analysis of the particular organism to determine a habitat size that can be provided Author: Jeong-Hui Kim, Ju-Duk Yoon, Seung-Ho Baek, Min-Ho Jang. include velocity measurements. Water surface elevations were simulated for flows from 2, to 15, cfs using the techniques described above.
